TMGC+C
Nothing too exciting happened with Takeshi on the 18th, except that he evolved into Kikitchi. Nothing against Young Mametchi (the “good care” teen), but Kikitchi is so adorable. I don’t really know why he would be considered the “bad care” teen but someone’s gotta be, I suppose. The weather is clearing up a bit. It hasn’t been snowing for the past few days but it’s either been raining or very cloudy, so no happy items (other than the usual three that are not weather-dependent: involving the tea, popsicle stick and hapihapi), which is fine. Sometimes a little delayed gratification is good. It’s going to be nice seeing the blue sky again soon. Again, I love this little feature on the +C, how the weather on the Tamagotchi itself matches current weather conditions in Japan. I love the attention to detail with the different shades of gray that color the sky. :)

Osutchi and Mesutchi
I paused these two on the 18th. One word of explanation: Friday (if you're still curious about what I'm talking about, feel free to check out my other Friday updates, especially the one involving Midori ♥). :P Also, I had a huge exam this day (ended up getting an A on it :D) so my mind was elsewhere. Had to prioritize!

That’s all for now. I may be back later for today’s (February 19th) update but if not, just know that I will be at least taking pictures along the way and will come back to log as soon as I can. In other related news, I’m thinking about getting an iD in the near future (gosh, I have spent so much on Tamagotchis in the past couple of months XD). As always, thanks so much for reading!

February 23, 2011

Finally get a chance to update. I’ve been pressed for time so much lately, including now, so I’m going to do my best to just hit the highlights and let the pictures do most of the talking (don’t be surprised if I do end up writing a lot though, it’s in my nature XD). I haven’t forgotten about my little ones, always making sure to check up on them and take pictures along the way. :)

First things first, a big shout-out to Pink Hippopotumas for checking in. I am always open to feedback and I’m glad you took me up on that. Thanks again!

I received a request to start up my Angelgotchi, which I will most likely accept. Angels are pretty low-maintenance so I think I’ll be able to squeeze it into my schedule. I haven’t run one in a while anyway. I’m going to start it up once I finish my Osu/Mesu run because low-maintenance or not, I don’t think I can handle more than 2 or 3 Tamagotchis with my schedule. On with the updates!

TMGC+C
Just when I think the +C can’t surprise me with something new, it does. :) So when Kikitchi was still around, I planted a tree. Rather than using the nyokinyoki (the instant tree-growing elixir), I left it so that every morning for the next few days or so, I would go outside of the house and the tree would grow a bit each day. Well, I went outside with Takeshi on one of the days, and it was snowing again (so much for the weather getting better :P). On this particular day, the last day, when the tree was to blossom to its full height and produce “fruit” of some sort, it did this (most likely due to the weather) and Takeshi looked most displeased. It just kind of sprouted to its full height and then twisted upon itself. Weird-looking, eh?

Posted Image

Since my last update, Takeshi evolved into this sleepy-looking guy, Nemutchi. Kind of expected since I’ve been taking horrible care of him (sorry, Takeshi!).

Posted Image Posted Image

After a couple of days, he visited the Matchmaker, married Furawatchi, and they had a baby girl. I named her Mai. She evolved into the odd-generation female toddler, Sakuramotchi. On the way to the Matchmaker, I noticed that the sky outside was red-orange with some light clouds, which made me wonder if the weather is clearing up again. After Mai was born, I took her outside to have a look and the sky was indeed clear. The deformed tree that was still there gave me the creeps a bit so I planted a new one. :D

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I finally got Pikachu to face me by keeping him attached to my person while I was volunteering at the hospital today (in addition to all the steps I made in the past few days), where I do a lot of walking, and gifting him a lot of watts.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Be back in a bit for my Osu/Mesu update!

February 23, 2011 (continued)

Osutchi and Mesutchi

Well, Iíve had these two paused on and off over the last few days but they finally evolved into adults, Minnie before Mickey again, to my surprise. I thought I had caught them up to each other, but apparently not. So I did the usual: pause Minnie until Mickey caught up. They may not be exactly in line because I tried pressing the mate button on both today. Minnie was all ready to go (you can see her moving around in the second picture doing the ďmating danceĒ) while Mickey just stood there shaking his head and kicking up dust shyly. Go figure. :P Anyway, Iíve adjusted their time so that they can spend more time awake. Iíd like to get them married pretty soon and finish up my part in the Valentineís hatch.

Posted Image Posted Image

I caught a picture of them sleeping in their "Debutchi" states once. They were drooling. :P

Posted Image

In other news, I won a brand new Angelgotchi hard case recently for about $16. Iím very excited to receive it. Pictures of it will be up once I get it (which may not be for a while, I chose SAL shipping since Iím in no hurry to get it and I trust this particular Ebay-erís packaging skills). The person Iíve been contacting for the iD hasnít responded but I know that itís probably because sheís been busy. Iíll probably drop her a line tomorrow.

Itís back to studying for me! Gotta be ready for my pharmacology and medication administration exams this week. @_@ As always, thanks for reading! I may be back later for short updates if something happens.

February 23-24, 2011

TMGC+C
I checked the weather just before Mai went to sleep because I wanted to see what the night sky looked like and to my surprise, it was a clear, starry night out! I proceeded to earn the happy item involving the shooting star by using the telescope. It took me 8 tries (this is actually good; I’ve had to do more tries :P). Hooray! Wow, I haven’t seen a clear dark sky since maybe November (since it’s typhoon season September-October and I think it started snowing around the beginning of December).

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

When Mai woke up, I ventured outside with her to see what the weather was like (our tree sprouted up a bit!) and we were met with a steady downpour of rain. Slowly getting there! I decided to take her to the temple to get her fortune. Mai received a "great blessing" (red)!

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Osutchi and Mesutchi
After all that time spent awake, and some time spent asleep (I altered the time so that they could sleep a few winks and then changed it to 8:59 AM so that they could “wake up” naturally), I again selected the mating icon on both. They’re both ready to get married, since they were both doing the dance, with the little tune in the background.

Posted Image

So when they both get excited like this, while the dance is happening, one is supposed to remove the tops of each Tamagotchi, revealing the jagged, interlocking edges (looks kind of like a cracked eggshell), and press them together fully (not too much pressure is needed). One then presses the B button on Osutchi (the male) and the dancing stops momentarily and then “OK” shows up on both screens, signaling that the connection was successful. To continue, the B button is pressed again on Osutchi and they both proceed to do this very coordinated, somewhat synchronized dance. I wish I could describe how cool it is through my words but I think I’d better show you in a video. >>>CLICK HERE<<<

I decided to wait to do this because I will be seeing my boyfriend tomorrow after all my exams and 10 hours of class >.< and I’ve been meaning to show him this interesting process. Can’t wait!

So my friend finally got back to me about the iD and gave me more information about the one she’s selling. She has one in pristine condition, including the box, instructions, everything. She has the pink one though. Of ALL colors available, she has the pink one! :P Oh well. I don’t hate the color by any means but as I mentioned in my first post, I try to avoid it as much as I can. She’s offering $60 for it. I was hoping for something more along the lines of $50-55 but I suppose it’s fair considering she purchased hers for around $80 (and they’re anywhere from $80-100 on Ebay) and I purchased my TMGC+C from her, actually, for $48 new-in-box, so the $60 would make sense because it’s typically priced at least $15 higher than the +C. Enough with the numbers and my complaining, I’m getting an iD! ^_^ As always, I’m later than most everyone else in purchasing some of the newer versions. :D Now I have to contact some of my more tech-savvy friends and see if anyone has one of the compatible phones or a PSP that I can borrow. I want to avoid buying one online as much as I can. I have heard that the iD is pretty fun even without all the custom stuff though and I am a pretty simple person (I’m still in love with my +C). Overall, I’m really looking forward to this! By the way, what is up with Ebay prices lately? I don’t remember +Cs being $65 (or more) about a year ago (unless I’m missing something here). Oceans too! Devils showing up for over $300?? O.O

Well, I’m playing the catch-up game again. Be back in a bit with the rest of my updates.

February 24, 2011 (continued)

TMGC+C
I knew that not much was going to happen for Mai on this day, except that she was to evolve into a teen later, so I just spent the day doing various things I haven’t done with the +C in a while and take pictures, like visiting the playground, the amusement park, the theater, and played around with the “C button” animations. Mai evolved into Chamametchi in the evening. I think I'm going to shoot for Lavuzukintchi (which will involve at least one care miss during the teen stage, since she's a middle-care character), since I've already gotten Memetchi and Marotchi (the other odd-generation female characters) in this log so far.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
Mai: "Hehe, yep. That was me in the movie." :P

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image
It was another clear night.

Osutchi and Mesutchi

No changes with Mickey and Minnie on this day, as I wanted to wait until the long day was over on Friday the 25th before I connected them.

Oh boy, what a week. I just finished a huge first wave of exams (I tackled medication administration and pharmacology yesterday) and performed swimmingly, to my great pleasure. :) It felt really good to sleep in a bit this morning and just lounge around in bed with my laptop while listening to music. The sun has been trying to peek out of the rain clouds all day. I’m just glad it has stopped raining and that there’s some natural light coming through. I do hope to stay productive despite my temporary break (I have an internship application essay to write and I might take care of taxes) but for now, I’d like to keep going with my Tamagotchi updates. :D The following is an update for Friday the 25th.

February 25, 2011

TMGC+C
I’m sure you all know by now that Fridays are one of my busiest days ever. I don’t think I’ve ever had 10 or so hours of straight lecture in my entire life, not even when I was an undergraduate. Anyway, I was busy but I made sure to check up on Mai and make sure that she didn’t die on me. I think I did a pretty good job on keeping myself from getting a care miss. Since I’m aiming for Lavuzukintchi, a middle-care character, I should have no more than 3 care misses while she is a teen. I love how precise it is to get the characters you want on the +C. I didn't want to try for the care miss at school because there could have been a chance of me overshooting, like I did with my first-generation female, Sayuri. I wanted to wait until I had a chance to actually watch my +C (i.e., during the weekend) to get a precise number of care misses. Nothing out of the ordinary today and no pictures. The stars of the show today after class were Mickey and Minnie.

Osutchi and Mesutchi
After my boyfriend and I had dinner, I took Osutchi and Mesutchi and showed him what happens when they get married. If you didn’t get a chance to see it in my previous post, >>>HERE<<< is a video of what happens. I feel like the process could be best described with that video. It's not my video, we just happen to have the same Osu/Mesu pair. :) I have some pictures of what happened on my end as well.

Posted Image Posted Image
Just before pressing the mating icon and then Mickey and Minnie doing the dance after the icon was pressed (before they were connected though).

Posted Image Posted Image
Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image
She's having the babies!

Posted Image Posted Image


That's all for now. If I remember correctly, I think it takes a couple of days for the parents to leave the babies. I may just do some time manipulation to catch up with everyone in the Valentine's Day hatch (since I did pause my Osu/Mesu a few times due to my busy schedule) or I might just end the hatch with this. We'll see. Stay tuned! I will mostly likely have another update later. Thanks for reading! :)

I feel so behind on my logging. If it werenít for the fact that Iíve at least been taking pictures in between log entries, I probably wouldnít recall anything. Thereís no room in my brain for Tamagotchi stats so I have to rely on pictures to jog my memory! XD Thank goodness for that. Anyway, unless Iím on a break that lasts more than a few days (i.e., spring/summer/winter breaks), Iím most likely not going to be logging on the day (or even on the day after) things happen, but at least a few days afterward, when Iím playing catch-up. :P In an ideal world, Iíve always envisioned myself doing bi-daily updates or once-a-day updates but itís just not possible with my schedule. I hope you all understand. However, I hope to update about every few days so that it doesnít all pile up. I tend to take lots of pictures. :D Anyway, Iím going to go ahead and pick up where I left off. By the way, Iím not running anything besides my TMGC+C at the moment. I do plan on running my Angelgotchi soon, just donít know when yet.

February 26, 2011


Before Mai evolved today, I played around with things some more. First off, today was the day our tree sprouted to its full height. It was a tree with 3-D glasses, which only Gorippatchi and Memetchi can use. I found it really strange that when the tree grew, it didnít twist upon itself like it did the last time the tree grew to its full height in the snow. I suppose my theory about it doing that because of the weather is wrong. Maybe itís more of a random occurrence.

Posted Image

Mai painted me a picture using her artistís paint palette! She also tried (unsuccessfully :P) to lift a dumbbell.

Posted Image Posted Image

I also used the story book, which only Chamametchi & Lavuzukintchi can use. Interesting results!

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

We also planted a new tree outside.

Posted Image

I purposefully made a care miss in order to get Lavuzukintchi. I managed to do it at around the right time too because shortly after the care miss happened, Mai evolved!

Posted Image Posted Image

Thatís all for the 26th! Be back in a bit for more updates.

February 27th, 2011

Looking back on the pictures, it doesnít seem like much happened on this day. We went outside to visit our tree and it sprouted up a bit more. It was still snowing. I still had high hopes that the weather would improve very soon. In the meantime, Mai was set. She had been an adult for one sunrise already. I was just waiting for the second sunrise to come around so that I could bring her to the matchmaker.

I bought yet another virtual pet. Not a Tamagotchi this time, but apparently a Tamagotchi-like Mickey Mouse pet. I had heard a few nice things about this one and Iím a huge Mickey Mouse and Disney (ďDis-nerd,Ē as some would call it XD) fan, so I thought it would be cool to try it out. Plus, I got it for less than $5, so I was really happy about that! Looking forward to receiving it!

Posted Image




February 28th, 2011

Why must I take so many pictures? Makes it harder on me when Iím updating sometimes. :P

Big day for Mai! Not even the rain could get her down.

Posted Image

Before heading over to the matchmaker though, I played around a bit. As mentioned previously, Chamametchi and Lavuzukintchi both can use the story book, so I let Mai (as Lavuzukintchi) play with it. She turned into Little Red Riding Hood this time! The "Big Bad Wolf" made an appearance. XD

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

We headed over to the matchmaker and Mai found love with Kuromametchi. They had a baby boy and I named him Jin. He evolved into the even-generation male toddler, Ahirukutchi, as usual.

Posted Image Posted Image

In the evening, I went outside and the sky was clear with stars! Jin used the telescope and located another happy item, the shooting star. Shortly afterward, it was bedtime for Jin.

Posted Image

Stay tuned...

Still catching up...

March 1st, 2011

Happy March! Jin woke up to this new item present in the living room. Thanks to some members over at Tama Zone, I found out that it’s a display of dolls in celebration of the Japanese Doll Festival on March 3rd. We went outside to check the weather early in the morning and were met with rain. Jin’s tree sprouted up. Another 3-D glasses tree.

Posted Image Posted Image

Later that morning, Jin evolved into Young Mametchi.

Posted Image

I decided to check the weather and was pleased to see that it was finally a beautiful day with puffy clouds. More happy items!

Posted Image

Getting the heart-shaped cloud was easy enough but the others took more tries. I was in class at the time, so I went back to work without getting those last two items. I wanted to wait until I had more free time to try for those items. By the time I got home though, the sun had already set. Ah well, next time!

Small update on the new Tamagotchi iD front. My friend has finally e-mailed me back and we’re still trying to figure out the final quote including shipping to my place. She’s selling it to me for $60 but then she’s going to be adding on several more dollars for shipping unless she finds a cheaper means of shipping it out. We’re in no hurry and I told her I’ll decide what to do once I hear back from her again.

In the meantime, I decided to look around a bit. Ebay was out of the question because a lot of the iDs there are $100 or more. So I took a look at Hobby Link Japan to see what they had to offer. I saw this gorgeous blue and silver iD but it’s on backorder.

Posted Image

Not completely out-of-stock, which is a good thing, but I may have to wait a while for it, which is fine with me. I decided to put in an order after e-mailing HLJ about it (they got back to me about my questions within the hour, which was fantastic). They told me that they have ordered more of the item but weren’t given an exact date for its arrival. I know this is how they work but…why would they not get word of an arrival date? Communication, people! :P Ah well. I was a little hesitant to put in the order because of its status BUT HLJ wouldn’t have told me that they’ve ordered more if there weren’t any more to order…right? Is there someone out there with a bit of experience with this? I’ve heard great things about HLJ but as it’s my first time ordering with them, I’d appreciate some reassurance. :) Other than that, once the order comes through, it’s going to come out to less than $60 total. I chose the SAL shipping option to save money because despite the long waiting time, I’ve heard good things about it and like I mentioned, I’m in no hurry to get one. Also, it’s blue! Nothing against the pink one that my friend is offering though. :D

Enough of my rambling! Stay tuned for more updates and thank you for reading!

Jin got the four-leaf clover and rainbow happy items, thus completing the happiness bar for the first time in several months due to the wintry weather. This unlocks the final menu selection under the door icon, which is a visit to the Gotchi King's castle.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I remembered that Young Mametchi had an item exclusive for his character (the aging box) so I decided to try it out. Not to worry, he changed back. :D

Posted Image Posted Image

I took Jin to the Gotchi Kingís castle in the evening to play the game. So upon entering the castle, a game can be played and one can earn up to 500 GP each visit by catching all the falling coins. Iíve already maxed out on the amount of money I can get but I wanted to snap some photos of what everything looks like.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Jin went to sleep at 8 pm. It was a quiet day overall.

Almost caught up...

March 3, 2011


Nothing much happened today, except that Jin evolved into an adult.

Posted Image

Nemutchi again! Rats, I was hoping to at least get Shimashimatchi because I know I had at least one care miss. I hadnít realized that I took such bad care of Jin. =/ Maybe next time.




March 4, 2011

Ahhh, Fridays. You all know the drill. :P This particular Friday was pretty busy. I had an exam in my health assessment class (which I got an A on :D) so today and the days leading up to the exam were packed. No pictures today, as I was in class the entire day and after that, my boyfriend and I went out for our 49 months and settled down for a fun-filled night of Wii (Mario Party and Mario Kart). ^_^

I did it again. I bought another Tamagotchi. Darn you for tempting me, Ebay! XD As is the case every time I get a new virtual pet, I'm very excited for its arrival. I hope to log about this one in the near future but it might not be here for a while. My Pikachu pedometer pet has a new friend now. :D

Posted Image

Until next time!

March 5, 2011

I took Jin to the matchmaker, where he married Furawatchi. They had a baby girl and I named her Keiko, which means “adored one” in Japanese. I have no idea which character I’m going for this time around but I think I’ll start off with getting the “bad-care” teen, Ichigotchi. In all the time I’ve had my +C, I’ve never tried for her, so I’ll give it a shot. With my busy schedule, I suppose it won’t be hard (how sad, hahaha).

Posted Image Posted Image

Since it was a beautiful day outside earlier today when Keiko was born, I decided to try for as many happy items as I could before Keiko evolved into a toddler. Couldn’t go for the shooting star until it was dark, after she evolved, of course. We also planted a new tree while getting all these happy items.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Keiko evolved into Sakuramotchi, as expected.

In other news, I’m still awaiting more news about my iD. Not quite sure when it won't be on backorder anymore. I just have to be patient. I kind of wish the iD L was still available for pre-ordering but at the same time, I’d like to learn more about it before I order one, if at all. They’ve already started showing up on Ebay, 3 times more expensive than what HLJ has. Ebay frustrates me sometimes. :P As always, thanks for reading and until next time!

March 6-9, 2011

So much for getting Ichigotchi. :P Apparently, I didn’t get enough care misses to get her, so Keiko evolved into Chamametchi on the morning of the 6th. Maybe next time. I apologize for not taking any pictures because I’ve been very busy and it’s not really anything you all haven’t seen already. :D

I didn’t keep track of how many care misses I got after Keiko evolved into a teen but apparently it was between 1 and 3 because she evolved into Lavuzukintchi after 48 hours on the 8th. Not much else happened with her after that. In other news, I did receive my blue Angelgotchi case from Japan, 15 days after it was shipped, via SAL. Very pleased about that. I wasn’t expecting it for at least another few days. It's so pretty, holding my blue Angelgotchi!

Posted Image Posted Image

It was a quiet day on the 9th.


March 10, 2011
This morning, I took Keiko to the matchmaker and she married Shimashimatchi. They had a boy, whom I named Tatsuya. We're now on the 6th generation so he evolved into Ahirukutchi, as usual.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

So recently, I received an e-mail from Hobby Link Japan pretty much reminding me that my iD is still on backorder and they can’t ship anything out until the item becomes available. -_- Well, yes, I knew this already. While it’s good that they’re keeping me in the loop, I wish they’d only e-mail me when they’re getting ready to ship it out. I don’t know. Am I being too optimistic about this? Sure, HLJ has put in more orders to Bandai for this item but what if there aren't any more? This is what it says about the one I’m currently looking at: “Yellow squares (which is what mine has) indicate items for which customers have been waiting 60 days or less” and “While this is no guarantee of availability, the chances of getting items like this in the short-term are better than for items with red squares.” Looks kind of promising, right? I’m still very much willing to be patient because like I mentioned in my previous posts, I’d like to save money and avoid Ebay at all costs and I'm very eager to get an iD but as it’s my first time ordering with HLJ, if anyone has any experience with backorders or can offer any general advice at all, please let me know! I'd appreciate it so much. :)

Offering my thoughts and prayers to everyone in Japan and the surrounding areas affected by the quakes and tsunamis.

Nothing much happened today with Tatsuya. He evolved into Young Mametchi this morning in lecture. Didn’t get a picture of him until later on in the evening, when he was sleeping. I just love the Japanese traditional style bedroom. :)

Posted Image

I’ll report back in 48 hours when he evolves into an adult. I’m going to try for Kuromametchi or Shimashimatchi, of course, since I’ve already gotten Nemutchi twice in this log.

Still looking forward to receiving my other recently-purchased items: the Mickey Mouse virtual pet and Tamawalkie. I’m hoping that they both will arrive sometime next week.

I really would like to start up, and log about, my Angelgotchi (by request) soon but I probably won’t be able to get to it until next weekend. This coming week will be a very busy one for me (come to think of it, all my weeks are normally busy :P): I have clinicals orientation, skills testing, an interview for an internship I’m really hoping to get and start this summer, a pharmacology quiz, and yet another exam in my health assessment class. Just listing it all out makes me feel a bit tired. :P Stay tuned…

March 17, 2011

I love today. Not because itís St. Patrickís Day (although itís nice to observe the holiday, wear green, eat green cupcakes, etc.) but because itís Thursday, one of those days during my week when I can just sleep in and lounge around all day. :D This week was particularly rough, as I had clinical skills testing on Tuesday and a big interview on Wednesday for a hospital internship that Iíve been eying for at least a year now. Itíll give me a lot of hands-on patient care experience so Iím really hoping that I get it! So I was fretting over those two things very much over the weekend. The weekís not over though, Iíve still got one more exam in my health assessment class thatís standing between me and spring break, but I know Iíll study and do my best. So please excuse my lack of updates lately. Iíll try and pick up where I left off.

Tatsuya evolved into Kuromametchi on the morning of the 13th, as expected. I let him play with his special item, which happened to be the electric guitar. He was flipping around, doing some fancy tricks (no doubt to impress the ladies :P). Rock on!

Tatsuya was ready to head off to the matchmaker on the 15th, but that was on the day of my skills exam and I had that big interview the next day, so I wanted to wait. By the time I got back from my interview on the 16th, he was already asleep (the interview was held in the evening, about 40 minutes from home).

I took Tatsuya to the matchmaker early this morning. He married beautiful Furawatchi and they hadÖdrum roll, pleaseÖA BABY BOY! Finally, a boy on the odd generation! Only took 7 generations. :P I noticed this on my first ever TMGC+C run as well. Out of all 29 generations, there were only a few times where I got a boy on the odd generation. Why am I so excited about this, you ask? Well, itís because Iím quite fond of Kuchipatchi and his alter ego, Patchiman. So Iíll be aiming for him by making sure to have between 1 and 3 care misses when he is a teen. I decided to name him Daisuke. He evolved into Kuribotchi. Gosh, I havenít seen Kuribotchi in a while. Just look at his adorable rosy cheeks!

Here he is, presenting me with a four-leaf clover. Happy St. Patrickís Day!

In other related news, I received both my Tamawalkie and Mickey Life Game pet today, much to my pleasant surprise, considering they were both shipped at different times and from different countries.

Posted Image

Opening the Mickey pet was easy enough, of course, but the packaging for the Tamawalkie was a different story. Loathe the Connection-styled packaging. >.< So easy to get cut with it if youíre not careful and you have to open it in a certain way if you want to preserve the packaging, which is what I like to do (I know, Iím kind of weird :P). So I took my X-Acto (lifesaver!) and just cut an opening in the back flap at the top, just big enough to ease the instructions and the Tamawalkie out. I think I did a nice job of it and the packaging remains completely intact if I ever want to store the Tamagotchi.

I love the way the Tamawalkie looks. I like this design the best out of the three and I was really happy to find one at a good price on Ebay (cheaper than Iíve ever seen so far anyway, for a brand new one). Itís smaller than I thought it would be, which is nice. Now my Pikachu pedometer has a companion. :)

Anyway, both pets look great and are in perfect working order. I canít wait to try them out!

I think Iíll take an updated picture of my virtual pet family over the spring break. Itís long overdue and I think (although I have been wrong before XD) that Iíve reached a plateau with my collecting at the moment. Thatís all for now and thanks for reading!

March 19, 2011

SPRING BREAK! Here I am sitting in bed with my laptop, listening to music and the sun is coming out. Life is good. :) I ended up getting an A on my health assessment exam. Great way to start the break. Although I do have quite a bit of work to do over the break, it feels really nice to have time to recuperate at home, especially since I think I’ve got a little cold going on here. It’s not too bad, slight congestion and a scratchy throat. I think that after my interview on Wednesday at the hospital, my body just decided to let go, saying “well, I’ve held on for you as much as I could to get you through this week, but I’m done for now.” :P Maybe it was just stress or maybe I caught something at the hospital. Well anyway, I’m also looking forward to more time with my Tamagotchis over the break. Without much further ado, here’s a quick update.

Daisuke woke up at 7 am on the 18th and I hadn’t bathed him the day before. I don’t know if you can tell because Kuribotchi is already brown, but he’s browner in the picture. So cute. ^_^

A couple of hours later, he evolved into Young Mametchi.

Posted Image

Nothing much else happened for the rest of the day. I contemplated getting one care miss out of the way during the day, since it was a Friday after all, but I decided to wait until the evening for that. Goodness, he doesn’t look too happy, does he? :P So I cleaned up his poo and just left him like that overnight, since he called for attention right before his bedtime.

Posted Image

This morning, Daisuke woke up not having a bath the day before, so I took care of that.

Posted Image

I also fed the poor guy since I allowed one care miss overnight. He won’t evolve into Kuchipatchi until tomorrow. I’m looking forward to that!

In the meantime, I think I’ll finally get that Angelgotchi started up. I’m also tempted to start up one other Tamagotchi but I don’t know which yet. Maybe my Oden-kun. I’ve been watching a friend log hers and it seems like a lot of fun.

I will be back later with an updated picture of my collection. It’s been 5 months since my last picture and my collection has changed quite a bit. Right now, it’s time to eat. What’s that? Leftover sushi and calamari from yesterday? Don’t mind if I do! See you guys later! :)

March 19, 2011 (continued)

I finally have an updated picture of my collection! For those already opened, I did put them back in their packaging for the picture. I wanted every pet to look their best. :D The picture that you see in my first log post was taken in October 2010. I’ve since added 16 Tamagotchis, the Mickey pet, and several accessories. This is a lot, by my standards. I’ve come a long way from my first Tamagotchi, the transparent yellow P2 I bought back in 1999.

Posted Image

I was happy that my entire collection fit into one frame. I did take 2 more pictures, one featuring my vintage Tamagotchis, the accessories, and the “odd” pets.

Posted Image

The other picture features the modern releases that I have.

I hope you enjoy the pictures! Questions? Comments? Let me know (via profile comment or PM, of course)! :)
